    Kelsey, I absolutely LOVE your inaugural blog entry! Thank you so much for the kind words and especially for the kind sentiments expressed therein. Would that more people out there might come to the same realizations that you have; it would be a far better world if they did. You’ll be pleased to note, I think, that I sipped appreciatively on a nice cup of green tea while thoroughly your thoughts. Well done indeed, dear “sister!” I’m looking forward to reading new entries as you produce them.
